Own a Gun, Go to Jail, Welcome to New Jersey!

What happened to Shaneen Allen should be synonymous for all that is wrong with gun control laws.  Allen is the Pennsylvania gun owner who ran afoul of New Jersey’s vicious attitude toward gun owners.

This young single mom twice had been the victim of crime in Pennsylvania and so she obtained a concealed carry permit.  A week later, mistakenly thinking that her permit protected her in New Jersey, Allen told a cop during a traffic stop that she had a gun in the car.  That got her 40 days in jail and meant that she was, subsequently, facing three to ten years if convicted on the charges.

A Response to William Norman Grigg 

Will Grigg has taken umbrage at my views about the Muslim murderer who beheaded a woman at the Vaughan Foods plant where they had both worked.

Adam Nolton had converted to Islam and became an offensive salesman for his newfound religion.  He became very agitated when coworkers were not interested in converting to Islam.  He was let go because he was so disruptive.

By now most gun owners are aware of anti-gun groups, such as Everytown for Gun Safety and other Michael Bloomberg affiliates, which are lobbying local and national business owners to ban open carry from their places of business. These groups have pushed stores to display signs which depict “No guns allowed” in order to ban concealed carriers as well.

The more that some public officials overstep their authority, the more that voters -- and others -- are stepping up and saying, “Stop!”

The 2014 congressional elections represented a collective shout by voters to politicians and bureaucrats to back off.  Way off.

Arm the GI’s and Stop Inviting Tragedy 

“Never again.”  

Those words are written in five different languages at the abandoned Dachau prison camp, a testimony to everyone who visits there that such an atrocity will never again be tolerated.

It’s wonderful to hear this “never again” kind of determination.  But it defies logic that the Obama Administration refuses to adopt a similar attitude in solving this ever-daunting question:  Why do mass shootings keep occurring in gun-free zones?

Gallup: Record 63% Say Having Gun Makes Home Safer

Sixty-three percent of Americans questioned in a Gallup survey conducted in October and released this month said they believe having a gun in their house makes it a safer place to be.

“A record-high percentage in U.S. say guns makes homes safer,” said Gallup in its analysis of the survey. The organization has polled on this issue in five surveys going back to 1993 (although the question in the 1993 survey was somewhat different than in later surveys).

Clerk with gun fends off robber with knife

LANCASTER – A store clerk said she feared for her life when she fired a shot at a steak knife-wielding masked man attempting to rob the store before he ran out Monday night, she told Lancaster police.

"I fired one shot at him and I missed him," the City Center Drive Thru clerk said, sounding scared and breathless during the 911 call.

The clerk described the masked man as about 5 feet 7 inches tall with a medium build, wearing black sweatpants and a gray hooded sweatshirt with a mask that also seemed to be made out of sweatshirt material with two eye holes cut out. She said it looked like the man was wearing sunglasses under the mask.
